Ready for the third quote from Allegiant?

Allegiant quote 3

GOD I’m just so freaking excited for Allegiant to release! October 22nd is just too far away!

I don’t know why, but I’m always late on knowing about books turning into movies, like one of my favorite books ever, If I Stay by Gayle Forman! Like, HOW could I not have known it’s going to be a movie?!? AHHH! And they’ve already cast Chloe Moretz as Mia, Jamie Blackley as Adam and Liana Liberato as Mia’s best friend Kim. What do you think of them?

NEW BOOK ALERT!! Ever read the Wolves of Mercy Falls series by Maggie Stiefvater? (If you haven’t, you should! It’s incredible–one of my favorite series of all time.) Well, Maggie told us that she’ll be writing a new book in the series, book #3.5, called Sinner, that focuses on Cole! I totally fell in love with Cole in the previous books, and can’t wait to see how his story will go!

Summary – A standalone companion book to the internationally bestselling Shiver Trilogy.

Sinner follows Cole St. Clair, a pivotal character from the #1 New York Times bestselling Shiver Trilogy. Everybody thinks they know Cole’s story. Stardom. Addiction. Downfall. Disappearance. But only a few people know Cole’s darkest secret — his ability to shift into a wolf. One of these people is Isabel. At one point, they may have even loved each other. But that feels like a lifetime ago. Now Cole is back. Back in the spotlight. Back in the danger zone. Back in Isabel’s life. Can this sinner be saved?

“Legions of fans — myself included — have wanted Maggie to return to the world of Shiver, and now she’s found an ingenious, sexy, utterly compelling way to do it,” says David Levithan, VP/Publisher and Editorial Director, Scholastic Press. “This isn’t so much a re-visitation as it is a reinvention, with Maggie taking readers to many places they’ve never been with her before. There is nothing quite so amazing as Maggie Stiefvater at the top of her game.”

Author Maggie Stiefvater says, “For me, finishing the Shiver trilogy was a bittersweet moment — I knew that I wouldn’t be returning to Mercy Falls once Sam and Grace’s story was over. But Cole and Isabel still lurked in the back of my mind. Both of them were only half-fixed at the end of the trilogy, and I wanted to know if they could be fixed the rest of the way.

REMY by Katy Evans cover is here!

Remy by Katy Evans

Remington Tate is a mystery, even to himself. His mind is dark and light, complex and enlightening. He might grasp his own thoughts at times and forget what he did in others. But through it all, there is one constant. The constant of wanting, needing, loving, and protecting Brooke Dumas with every fiber of his being. Remy is his story from the first moment he laid eyes on her and knew, without a doubt, she would be the realest thing he’s ever had to fight for, to the moment she becomes his.

Olivia Cunning is writing a new book for the Sinners on Tour series called Sinners at the Altar! (From Goodreads) This anthology will include the wedding day stories of all five Sinners told in their points of view. It will also include the Aruba honeymoon of the couple who started it all, Brian and Myrna. The ebook version of Sinners at the Altar will have some added special features, such as never before released deleted scenes from the original books. Don’t miss it!

It’s FOUR!!! *fangirls*

Four quote

Want to see a quote from Allegiant in Tris’s POV? Go here!

Ally Carter’s upcoming book is coming SOON!! AHH!! SO excited for it! It’s the very last Gallagher Girls book, so even though I’m happy to read it, I’ll still end up being sad once it’s over. But while we’re waiting for United We Spy to release, here’s Chapter 1 and 2 on Ally’s blog! And here’s the book trailer:

Jessica Sorensen has told us the release date for the sequel for Breaking Nova is February 4th, 2014! Super excited for it, since I really enjoyed Breaking Nova (read my review here).

And OMG! OMG!! Ilona Andrews has a new snippet for Magic Breaks (Kate Daniels #7)!

Sooner or later you’ll break,” he said.

“Keep hoping.”

“You’re a survivor. Voron put you on the edge of that cliff again and again until he conditioned you to claw onto life. You’ll do whatever you have to do to survive. I’m your only chance of getting out. At first you’ll balk, but with every passing hour my offer will look better and better. You’ll convince yourself that dying will accomplish nothing and you should at least go out with a bang. You’ll tell yourself that you’re accepting my offer just so you could stick that [redacted] sword into my chest and feel it cut through my heart. Even if you die afterward, the fact that I’ll stop breathing makes your death mean something. So you’ll call me. And you’ll try to kill me. Except you’ve been three days without food and that body…” He tilted his head. “That body burns through calories like fire goes through gasoline. You’re running out of reserves. I can put you down with one hit.”

“That’s a cute story.”

He tapped his naked chest over his heart. “This is the spot. Give it a shot, Kate. Let’s see what happens.”

You can read all the snippets so far here.

AND there’s a new snippet for City of Heavenly Fire (The Mortal Instruments #6) by Cassandra Clare! (You can read more stuff on her tumblr.)

What does it mean?? I’m honestly excited for the book, but I have no idea where Cassie is going with the series or how she’s going to end it.

The last thing Dawson Black expected was Bethany Williams. As a Luxen, an alien life form on Earth, human girls are…well, fun. But since the Luxen have to keep their true identities a secret, falling for one would be insane.

Dangerous. Tempting. Undeniable.

Bethany can’t deny the immediate connection between her and Dawson. And even though boys aren’t a complication she wants, she can’t stay away from him. Still, whenever they lock eyes, she’s drawn in.

Captivated. Lured. Loved.

Dawson is keeping a secret that will change her existence…and put her life in jeopardy. But even he can’t stop risking everything for one human girl. Or from a fate that is as unavoidable as love itself.

Valkyrie Rising by Ingrid Paulson is FREE too!

Nothing ever happens in Norway. But at least Ellie knows what to expect when she visits her grandmother: a tranquil fishing village and long, slow summer days. And maybe she’ll finally get out from under the shadow of her way-too-perfect big brother, Graham, while she’s there.

What Ellie doesn’t anticipate is Graham’s infuriating best friend, Tuck, tagging along for the trip. Nor did she imagine boys going missing amid rumors of impossible kidnappings. Least of all does she expect something powerful and ancient to awaken in her and that strange whispers would urge Ellie to claim her place among mythological warriors. Instead of peace and quiet, there’s suddenly a lot for a girl from L.A. to handle on a summer sojourn in Norway! And when Graham vanishes, it’s up to Ellie—and the ever-sarcastic, if undeniably alluring Tuck—to uncover the truth about all the disappearances and thwart the nefarious plan behind them.

Deadly legends, hidden identities, and tentative romance swirl together in one girl’s unexpectedly-epic coming of age.

OMG OMG!!! If you didn’t know already, Colleen Hoover is writing a novella for Daniel, Holder’s best friend from Losing Hope! And it’s going to be posted on her website for free! AHHH!!! Here’s a sneak peak at his novella. From that little excerpt, I know the novella will be amazing. I already love it! I was super intrigued by Daniel in Losing Hope, since we never really get to know him in Hopeless, so I’m glad he’s getting his own novella.

Do you see this? DO YOU SEE THIS?? It’s Tahereh freaking Mafi saying that there will be another novella in the Shatter Me series from ADAM’s POV!!! I’m still Team Warner, mind you, but I still remember the time I was Team Adam, so of course I’m excited for his novella! (But I’m hoping the entire novella won’t be Adam whining lamenting over his love for Juliette. BE A MAN ADAM!!)

The synopsis for Sentinel (Covenant #5) by Jennifer L. Armentrout came out! The book releases November 2nd 2013.

Sentinel by Jennifer L. Armentrout

As the mortal world slowly slips into chaos of the godly kind, Alexandria Andros must overcome a stunning defeat that has left her shaken and in doubt of their ability to end this war once and for all.

And with all the obstacles between Alex and her happily-ever-after with the swoonworthy Aiden St. Delphi, they must now trust a deadly foe as they travel deep into the Underworld to release one of the most dangerous gods of all time.

In the stunning, action-packed climax to the bestselling Covenant Series, Alex must face a terrible choice: the destruction of everything and everyone she holds dear… or the end of herself.

New Untold by Sarah Rees Brennan snippet here!!! AAHHHHHHH! Sometimes I don’t even know why I bother reading all these snippets. They only serve to make me overly emotional, and always in a bad way. Because JARED. IS. BEING. AN. ASS. I’m a total Team Jared, Jami/Kared fan, but come on! Why do you keep making my heart hurt, Sarah Rees Brennan? *cries*

So this week, I had a couple of cover reveals on the blog, and all were for books I’m dying to read!

Did you know….

That there’s going to be a movie of THE BOOK THIEF????

Noo????

Well, me either!!! At least, I had no idea until today, when I saw a post by the author, Markus Zusak! I’m so sad that I honestly had NO IDEA there was going to be a movie 😦 You can read everything about the upcoming movie and trailer here on the author’s tumblr!

Psst… the trailer has already been released! Go check it out here! The Book Thief is one of my all-time favorite books ever. It’s the type of book that strikes at your heart and makes you think and doesn’t leave your head for a long time, if ever. So go read it if you haven’t! You will not regret it, even as your heart is tearing apart at the end…

So I’ve just finished Shooting Scars by Karina Halle, and… I’m a bit sad. I didn’t think it was as good as the first book, which I loved. I’ll be posting my review of it soon, and for now, I’ve started Breaking Nova by Jessica Sorensen! I got an advanced copy from Netgalley, along with The Iron Traitor by Julie Kagawa, which is like, OH MY GOD!!!!! Julie Kagawa is one of my favorite authors ever, and to get an advanced copy of her book…. *faints* I love love love her Iron Fey series and The Immortal Rules, and getting an early copy of one of her books is like a dream come true! *hyperventilates*
